Subject:Now we know who uses the manual From:"Sigrid A. Schoepel" <sas -at- WIGGINS -dot- PENTATECHINC -dot- COM> Date:Wed, 14 Aug 1996 10:18:49 -0500
A friend of mine at work has a boat. Last weekend someone broke into her boat and another person's boat and stole the stereos.
In the other person's boat all that was left was a gaping hole and the stereo manual open to the page about installing and removing the stereo.
That manual passed the usability test.
